For the unfamiliar, TMOE is Kristian Matsson, a normal-sized 27 year old songwriter from Dalarna, Sweden. Having earned a small but fervent fanbase while touring with Bon Iver (at the height of the Bon Iver buzz, no less), Matsson's star has been brightening ever since, his recent record, the aforementioned The Wild Hunt, earning some of the best reviews of 2010. Known foremost for his raspy-yet-joyful voice and spare, fingerpicked compositions, TMOE is two albums (and now two EPs) deep into his campaign for World's Best Young Songwriter. Me? Well, I was instantly impressed by the writing and vocals when I heard TMOE's debut, Shallow Grave, a couple of years ago. That said, I felt that the sparseness of the compositions - not to mention the similarities to early Dylan - proved to be limiting.

If you're a newcomer to his music, I recommend starting with The Wild Hunt rather than this album (though doubtless other fans will have other suggestions).
As for the seller: I bought this album used and it arrived in excellent condition with original case and liner notes. Exactly what I wanted.
nothing quite better to console the art of being lonely, than a record about the blues.
The blues that never seem to go away.
This ep, that plots right in between The Tallest Man's 2009 album and his newest release of 2012. And finds itself not really connecting in anyway to the others. I truly connected with this album, and found inspiration, much as any artist does with music. Songs, like the wheel, and dreamer filled with reverb and echoing in high shrills and shaking lyrics. The album all the way through is spectacular.
In all honesty, you need to see this man live to truly appreciate the certain stage presence and eyes piercing looking right at you as he belts out "King of Spain".
Long Live Physical Media, buy this record and support the music.
I highly recommend The Tallest Man On Earth's music.

It crazy how much Tallest Man is able to convey this much emotion in 5-6 songs. All of them are great songs and a must have for any Tallest Man fan.Published on December 28, 2012 by Nathan Engel
